I have not been able to stop thinking about this book since I finished it!
I was hesitant to start it because there was so much hype around it on BookTok but oh my gosh was it worth it! I genuinely can't remember the last time I was so fixated on finishing a book as I was with this one! It was impossible to put down.
Violet is such an easy character to love! Everyone in her life doubts her and thinks she is weak which makes you want to defend her to the death. She is badass and proves everyone wrong about her.
Don't even get me started on Xaden. Never have I loved a fantasy MMC this much since Rhysand from ACOTAR. I knew the instant he showed up on the page I would love him. Morally grey, great with daggers, and controls shadows. What more could you ask for in a fantasy MMC?? He's also one of the few people to NOT treat Violet like a delicate flower. He pushes her to become stronger for herself and teaches her to defend herself. Not to mention the custom daggers and saddle he made (!!!) for her and the nickname he gives her.
These two are the perfect embodiment of enemies to lovers. Witty banter, throwing daggers at each other, sparring, and so much tension!!
This book also has dragons!! What's not to love about dragons? It easily made me wish I was attending Basgiath War College so I could have a dragon of my very own.
If you haven't read this book, stop what you are doing and read it right now. It is that good!
Oh, and its the first book in a FIVE book series! The second book comes out November 7th!
I'm already counting down the days to Iron Flame!

A rider without their dragon is dead."
